I'm Back, Sort Of...

With the British Show in Hamilton, Ontario over, I was fully expecting to be back at home tonight. Sadly, my 92 year old father who has been residing in a nursing home for the past nine months, suffered a fall, and for the last two days has refused food and water. I spent the entire day with him and at this point, things are not looking good. Instead of going home tonight to my wee house in the country, I am at my sister's suburban house which is closer to my father's residence.

Since Dad was asleep most of the day, to pass the time at his bedside, I made up my list of Christmas presents I plan to make for family and friends.

For the past five years, I have been making my own Christmas cards with matching envelopes and sending out about 50 cards a year. This year I simply won't have time to make all those individual cards, so I have challenged myself to make one "special" card and post it on this blog for all my online friends.

I bought some beads and metal embellishments while I was in Hamilton and am anxious to return to my doll making soon. I still need to put some finishing touches on a Dotee doll I created for my swap partner, Kelli, in Tasmania.

J & E - thanks for looking after my cat.

Hoping for a better day tomorrow.
